Manifest banded together with The Canadian Hearing Society to kick off the ‘Keep on Listening’ campaign with a very special event at Yonge-Dundas Square Wednesday, April 25th.
Manifesters and CHS volunteers spent the day handing out 5,000 ‘earfoams’ packages to unsuspecting pedestrians. The packages appeared to contain free ear buds. However, on closer examination, they turned out to be ear plugs, accompanied by an invitation to insert the ear plugs and simulate the hearing loss that listening to music at unsafe volumes may result in.
Manifest created this initiative particularly with young people in mind. Audiologists predict that 1 in 5 adolescents may be permanently damaging their hearing by unsafe listening. This potential epidemic of hearing loss needs to be addressed.
